Many longtime readers of this blog know that I have a set of animated PowerPoint-compatible slides available for you to use FREE in your A&P classes. These slides—the Lion Den Slide Collection— supplement the publisher-supplied slides or homegrown slides that you are already using.
I recently updated, improved, and expanded the set of slides that animate several key cell transport processes such as diffusion, osmosis, endocytosis, etc.
If you've accessed the Lion Den Slide Collection in the last several months, you've already registered in the system and probably have already received an email notification of the update.
If you're new to the collection (or accessed it before June 2014) then you need to go to the Lion Den Slide Collection page and click on the link to the form. It takes a few steps, but by filling out the brief forms you register for a service that will notify you (if you want it) of any updates or additions to the collection.
Here is a preview the newly updated Membrane Transport Animations

When you download the linked file, you'll be able to play it in PowerPoint or any other program that plays "show" or PPTSX files. The slides can only be viewed, not edited or added to your own slide deck. To do that, you must download the fully editable PPTX files from the Lion Den Slide Collection.
Once you download any slide deck from the Lion Den Slide Collection, you can mix and match them to blend them with your existing presentations. You can also alter the content or timings to suit your needs.
I'm hoping you'll also get some ideas from them to create new additional slides! If you modify, create, or already have any slides (for which you own the content) that you want to place in the collection for sharing, please contact me directly.
